The two inside lanes of eastbound Interstate 244 between Harvard and Yale and at Memorial will be closed for a bridge rehabilitation project.

That will start at 7 p.m. Monday.

The outside lane of north and southbound Memorial will also close over I-244 at 9 a.m. Monday through Friday as part of the same project. It's expected to cost more than $9 million.
